Make Egg Casseroles With Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

Posted on

The best part about the day after Thanksgiving, besides the sleeping in and big sales, are the leftovers! Allow me to suggest an alternative to the turkey sandwich, or meat loafs. Here’s a quick and easy way to revamp your Thanksgiving leftovers and turn them into a delicious breakfast for you and your loved ones.

You can use a couple of different methods, depending on how many people you have to feed and what you have on hand. I use a cupcake tray here, but I’ve also used pie baking dishes and ramekins. It doesn’t matter what you bake this dish in, just make sure you spray the dish with a non-stick oil before you begin. If you run out of egg mix you can also crack a whole egg in each dish, as I did in some of mine below. You can serve these with a side of leftover cranberry or apple sauce and a slice of cornbread.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to be grateful for all you have. I’m thankful for my family, friends and all the wonderful food I get to enjoy. Not having to worry about where my next meal will come from is honestly one of the biggest blessings in my life. I know many people out there are not as lucky. Because every day people living right here in our local communities go hungry. To learn more about the importance of food security, and how you can help, please visit any of the following websites:

3. BEAT the eggs and milk together.

4. SPRAY each section of the cupcake tray, or whatever you will use to bake the casserole(s), with a non-stick oil. You can also use butter.

5. SCOOP a mix of meat and veggies and DROP into each cupcake section, only filling halfway.  There are enough eggs to fill 9. You can also use a pie dish or ramekins.

You can also crack a whole egg in each serving instead of using the egg mix. It all depends on your personal taste.

8. BAKE at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle again with grated parmesan cheese, then remove from the trays with a thin spatula.

9. SERVE immediately and ENJOY!

  1. This looks great! It also looks as if you put whole eggs into some of them?

    • Hi! I did. I cracked whole eggs in some of them and used the egg mix in others. I wanted to show you how both ways would look. I think I prefer the egg mix though, the final consistency is fluffier, like an omelet. But the whole cracked egg “looks” prettier :-).
